A large, semi-aquatic mammal that lives in the arctic seas.
Also, an enemy in the leaked alpha of the abandoned SMW sequel for Phillips CDi, Super Mario's Wacky Worlds. Sometimes the odd-looking creature will appear in place of the PPP's normal description on the forum-list, and often with some sort of themed edit to it. One of the most recent examples of this is around the start of E3 2006, when many variations of the fluffy mammal appeared with regularity, sometimes animated but always reflecting new announcements from the convention floor.
It has recently surfaced again in Mode 7, and yet another time fully facing the front (along with the text, "im not going back until joey is demodded. bar none.").

JESUS CHRIST, GET AWAY FROM THAT WALRUS!
On the 3rd September 2006, the PPP's name was changed to "JESUS CHRIST, GET AWAY FROM THAT WALRUS!", and the description changed to a YouTube video of an elephant seal being poked. However it was taken down moments later.
This was the result of Trasher finding the video on Something Awful, sending it to Klobber, and much schoolboyish giggling on AIM. The video was quickly taken down because even as far as PPP renames go, embedding Youtube videos in there is just dumb.
Revenge of the Walrus
Super Mario & The Elemental Orbs
The third world of Super Mario & The Elemental Orbs introduces Walruses as a recurring enemy, and as a boss.
Super Mario Bros. & The Midas Machine
Walruses appear in at least one level of Super Mario Bros. & The Midas Machine as an enemy.
The Walrus appears as an Easter egg in Toadette Strikes. He says a bit of dialogue, and then hands Toadette that levels coin.
"Yep, I'm the Walrus, goo goo g'job, et cetera, and so on." "Here I am making my contractually obligated appearance." "You'd think that after nearly a decade people would be sick of me..." "Yet here you are, all the way out here to visit me..." "It warms up this old, washed-up superstar's heart!" "Here, let me give you a present!" If the Walrus is talked to after this dialogue finishes, he will simply say, "I even signed it for you!"
Super Mario Bros. Dimensions
Walrus's appeared as enemies in the bonus level "Wacky Walrus World", and there are gray variants of them.
In Abducted Toad, there are hybrids of Walruses and Serpents. These are known as Hydralruses, and can spawn fireballs from their mouths. Despite being at least partially reptilian from the neck up, they are still aquatic. Basic Walruses appeared in a level of World ?, known as Fangames Galaxy Area. They are not dangerous to touch, but you can bounce on them. Manateeruses also appear in said level, which are found swimming in the water.
